So i dropped my xbox and now when i put a game in it says reading, makes funny noises than says open tray. Anyone know any fixes? or will i have to replace the optical drive?

i would say open it up maybe clean it some just do not touch the lens of the eye but if it is making noises and stuff it could be the eye hitting the disc as it spins or even the motor for the disc drive going out but if you replaced the whole dvd drive you would have to flash the correct dvd key i think it is to the console for a new one to work with it.

Open up the drive and try to clean out the laser. If that doesn't work, buy a new laser, not a new drive. A laser on eBay cost about $5, whereas, a drive would cost $50+.
